Pink Lady apples have been arriving in my organic produce boxes. Inspired by a dish on the Chez Panisse menu, I thought the apples lovely pink color and extranvagent sweetness would lend itself to a dessert. With only a few apples, I added dark sweet cherries (yes, frozen, defrosted & drained) to the galette. Beautiful, sometimes it all works.

I sliced the apples thin, easily by using a handheld mandoline slicer (like this) then fanned them around the dough which was rolled out to a 12-inch circle. The cherries were mounded in the center of the tart, edges folded over, a sprinkle of sugar and off in the oven. A brush of rapsberry perserves on the apples for another layer of pink sweetness.

Cooking at home with simplicity in mind–a tart is born…Pink Lady Apple & Dark Cherry Galette.

As always, enjoy. B
